You guys really brought out an all-star cast tonight.  Great job.  My own sim crashed out enroute, but, I stream-hopped the rest of the night and heard nothing but truly outstanding service.

Thanks for the kind words Rob!

We all worked our butts off last night, and was well worth it. I and many others had a blast!

Today is the day! Event starts at 0000Z-0400Z. Hope to see you all there! Please read the pilot brief, and get scenery before flying into ORD. Every sim except for the latest XPlane 11 versions have very outdated scenery by defult missing several runways. In the brief there is a link to the DD freeware that works an unlimited amount of time and is great, as well as links to payware options as well. Please at the very least have the freeware so we can put you on any runway that we have! Thanks! And yes, PWK will have staffing at least via the DEP controller. See ya all there!

This is a great piece, Shane! I too (like Antony) used to take little breaks...whether it be I'm going to move my chair, check my texts, etc. while I wait for the readback! It's a new culture - and some of us need slight adjustments!  8) 8)

Great advice, Shane.  In the transportation shop I used to work at, we trained our drivers to mentally add the word "click" to the beginning and end of their message while keying and unkeying.  "(click) 315 to base, Silver Spring tally 36, 8 minutes late. (click)"

Something that has taken me off guard is the instant reply you get from pilots - i'm used to sitting back taking a sip of coffee or a bite of cake before I get a readback, but since AFV its instant something to rebuild into the skillset.

General Discussion / Holding PTT Switch Down Long Enough
« Last post by Shane VanHoven on October 17, 2019, 01:45:15 pm »
Hey all, VATSIM has new life for me with the new audio. I can easily spend 8 hours working real airplanes and come home and actually enjoy connecting to VATSIM because this audio is so spot on. One thing I've noticed while flying around the country since the update, is that controllers and pilots alike tend to "clip" the end of their transmissions. That is, releasing their PTT before they're actually done talking. When receiving an instruction, it's possible to miss an important part of a clearance like a heading or altitude because the transmission was clipped. Not the biggest deal, but all this adds up to save time during busy sessions if you have to continuously repeat instructions. If you find that pilots are commonly asking you to repeat, try counting to "one" in your head before you unkey.

In the old days we could just blame out deficiencies on not being able to understand the pilots/controllers but now we have no excuse! I even found myself making extra transmissions during a recent session just cause I liked hearing readbacks. Good luck!

Happy talking!

Any chance for PWK coverage?  We don't all fly tube liners  :P
A Skyhawk into ORD, if you can afford Signature.
